The presented sampled-current memory cell demonstrates class AB operation where the bipolar input current magnitude may exceed twice the quiescent bias current even though full cascode regulation is maintained. Calculation of the necessary safety margin to accommodate process tolerances is shown to be simplified compared with the standard regulated cascode cell.
